Pipeline protesters to hold hands, encircle White House

Washington (CNN) - Thousands of protesters held hands and encircled the White House grounds on Sunday, demanding President Barack Obama reject a proposed oil pipeline that would stretch between Canada and Texas.

"Stop the pipeline, yes we can!" the environmental activists chanted about the 1,700-mile Keystone XL project.

    Will Obama kill more jobs by working to cancel it? Depends on what his largest doners tell him to do....
